5:03 am
>> officials say they're doing their best in a very challenging situation. they don't know if someone is missing unless the family makes a report. they are asking everyone to come to the veterans memorial recreation center and report in so they can get a full count. >> with been asking people to check in. some cases people haven't come forward until later. >> officials are hopeful some of the missing might show up and check in. cadaver dogs will be back to the scene. >> we have three areas to check. numbers could change a little. >> the family is assuming levon, greg and will are gone. friends say they're ready to be there for the family, including jeannine who lost her brother, father and grandmother. >> she probably has a lot of help and her friends and family and i think probably her church. we're going to need all the help. >> as we mentioned the evacuees will be allowed to return to their home starting at noon today as long as the homes are

5:06 am
it's obviously more expensive. that means we will be looking into why that occurred. >> also the ntsb confirmed that pg&e had manual valves on either side of the break, not automatic valves to stop the flow of gas. the pipeline that exploded was installed back in 1956 when there were fewer homes here because the area is so heavily populated now, the public utilities commission designated the pipeline high risk. >> that certainly increases in our estimation the need to look at that issue whether there should be automatic shutoff volume ofs when there's a massive leak in the pipe which would be signalled by a pressure drop. >> the latest measurement shows the crater left by the blast to be 167 feet long and 26 feet wide. the soil was too unstable do determine how deep it is. pg&e now says it started inspecting three major gas transmission lines in the peninsula. senator barbara boxer is calling
5:07 am
on state and federal regulators to accelerate their inspections of pipelines statewide. >> there could be corrosion. there could be faulty parts in these pipelines. there could also be excavation and so we have to be very clear that we're trying to prevent this from ever happening again. and the first way seems to me is to do these inspections in a priority order where you have population. >> by itself natural gas has no odor. the ngsb confirm fiscal the gas in this line was in fact odorized creating that natural gas smell which some residents claim they noticed in the days leading up to this catastrophe. john alston. >> if you smelled natural gas leading up to the explosion, investigators want to hear from you. california's public utilities commission set up a toll free number, 800-789-0550 or you can
